Today was my grocery shopping day. I took my Aunt Barbara with me and we headed off to the store, coupons in hand. This week's savings was pretty good, but not a personal best. I purchased $308 in groceries for $118...a savings of about 60%. On the way home, we stopped off at the vegetable market to pick up a few things. They had their vine ripe Roma tomatoes on sale, 2lbs for $1. What a deal! So I bought a 25lb box.
Tonight I am making spaghetti sauce which I will can tomorrow. I have cored, peeled and crushed all the tomatoes. I have also chopped 4lbs of onions, 4 heads of garlic and 5 sweet peppers. It is currently on the stove, cooking away, in two of my largest pots. I'm thinking of turning it to low and letting it simmer all night. In the morning, I'll add tomato paste, sugar, salt and some fresh basil from my garden. I hope I get enough jars to make it worth my effort. It's a real pain in the rear! lol
If it turns out, I'll post some pictures tomorrow. (Oh please...let it turn out!)
